Compaction is caused by everyday foot traffic, children playing in the yard, or furniture and other objects that remain on the lawn. Just like transplanting your favorite house plant as it grows, your lawn needs “breathing room” to grow. Lawn Aeration loosens compacted soil, increasing its ability to transfer air, water and nutrients to the root system. Fertilizer and water should be applied immediately afterward to maximize the conditions created by aeration.
The fall is a great time to aerate your yard. Lawn Aeration combats grass compaction from summer traffic and encourages the uptake of nutrients and oxygen.
What Is Aeration?
The process of removing plugs of soil to relieve soil compaction and allowing oxygen, water and nutrients to enter the ground.
